INNO TUTORIAL - Using Unicode and ANSI Versions of INNO Setup

Allright, i'm opening this thread because there are people who's asking 'how to ansi version of INNO' to prevent this question here's the tutorial for ya.

A) Unicode Version of INNO Setup

*The version which dominate conversions thanks to yener. The current DVD conversions use Unicode versions of INNO Setup mainly because of the language and foreign character support. Most of the threads have information about the version of INNO. If there's none, better ask in the thread.

1. Go to their page first:

Code:
http://www.jrsoftware.org/isdl.php#stable
2. Download 'isetup-5.5.2-unicode.exe'

3. Install the setup, during the setup, select the language, select the installation folder etc.

4. Installation will complete and you can use INNO Setup directly.

No matter what you'll do, you will use Unicode type of INNO now. TO be sure if it's Unicode or not check the bar:



Side Notes:

If you get TGUID errors in compiling, this means you're not using Unicode version of INNO.

B) ANSI Version of INNO Setup

*Most of the old INNO Setup conversion uses ANSI version of INNO, if thread didnt say it and if it's old one, it's probably ANSI of INNO Setup.

1. Go to their page first:

Code:
http://www.jrsoftware.org/isdl.php#stable
2. Download the latest version of INNO:



3. Install the setup, during the setup, select the language, select the installation folder etc.

During the install you will see optional install about a ISPP add-on. Install it also.

4. Installation will complete and you can use INNO Setup directly.

No matter what you'll do, you will use ANSI type of INNO now. TO be sure if it's ANSI or not check the bar:



If you see (a) this means it's ANSI version.

Conversion makers can use this info in their conversion threads to prevent ANSI related questions. (Don't copy whole thread just give the link of it)


CHANGELOG:

11.29.12 - Updated Unicode INNO's setup version in it's site.
